accessing a J2ee web application on iphone

Hi,

We have a web application written using J2EE stack. This web app shows list of doctors (photos and information) and the member can browse the doctors from the page. Since we already have the business logic and services already written in Java, how can we reuse these and make this web application available to the end users on iPhone ?

How do design the UI for iphone, what are the hardware and software requirements. Can this be done on windows ?
How can the UI communicate to the Java services which can return the list of available doctors ?


Thanks
Akbar

The iPhone does have a web-browser. You can already view your web-page and zoom in using a reverse pinch gesture.

If you still want to make a native app there are webapps, but objective-c apps are more powerful.

Actually you can expose your middle tier via web services or REST and have a UI using iPhone SDK to access them and display in the phone's native way.
